Japanese Cloisonné: Boxing Clever

9th April 2024

Cloisonné enamel was a major part of the great flowering of the decorative arts in the Meiji period, which lasted from 1868 until 1912. Many pieces were made for export and therefore featured typical Japanese themes; Mount Fuji, koi carp, birds and auspicious plants such as prunus, bamboo, paulownia and chrysanthemum (kiku). The work was of very high quality with gold and silver wires (cloisons) separating the colours, silver rims and silk brocade interiors.
